Are There Rules for Spoilers? Should There Be?
Spoiler alert! Probably not.
Personally, I believe in a statute of limitations, whereby you no longer have to feel responsible for not spoiling things after they’ve been around long enough, but you still shouldn’t do it on purpose like a jerk. Of course, what exactly even constitutes a spoiler is different for different people, so maybe the Internet prophylactic method suggested by Emily Eifler would be a better way to go. Get working on the spoiler condom, science.
PBS Idea Channel tried to come up with some other solutions, as well, with the help of their Internet friends.
- We wondered if predictions should be treated as spoilers
- And we wrote a spoiler-free movie review
- We like to have a separate space for spoilers
